Thales's presence in New Zealand over the last 20 years has resulted in our participation in several successful projects.
Safer skies with Thales aviation and air traffic management systems
Thales has played an integral role in ensuring the safety of air travel in New Zealand. At most major New Zealand airports you’ll find Thales’s DVOR instrument landing equipment providing planes with the ability to land in fog and other limited visibility conditions. Thales also provides control radar, en-route radar and secondary radar at multiple sites throughout New Zealand and recently upgraded the radar systems to allow for satellite navigation at 13 locations around the country.
Simulation systems to support Air New Zealand
Thales is the world’s second largest provider of simulation based training solutions for civil, military aircraft and helicopter pilots. Thales supplies key technologies and supports Air New Zealand with full-flight simulators.
Proud supporter of the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF)
Thales provides a wide range of systems and equipment to the NZDF including encryption devices, friend or foe identification capabilities, tactical radios, thermal imaging equipment, electro-optics for the Light Armoured Vehicle , Steyr rifles and small arms ammunition.
A seamless multi modal transport ticket for Auckland public transport
Thales is delivering a multi modal and multi operator ticketing system for Auckland and the Auckland Regional Transport Authority. The system will provide Auckland transport customers with seamless movement between trains, buses and ferries using one smartcard ticket, and make public transport much more attractive for residents and visitors to Auckland.
Securing safe transactions and communications
Thales provides the encryption and secure transaction and communication technologies supporting most electronic transactions through EFTPOS and ATMs for most banks in New Zealand.
